Refugees: UK Government Policy (10 Feb 2016)

Heidi Allen: I am the first to say that we need to be doing more in Europe and many hon. Members will know that I was in Lesbos with colleagues the weekend before last. The hon. Gentleman’s statement is shameful and wrong.

Refugees: UK Government Policy (10 Feb 2016)

Heidi Allen: By and large, I agree with my hon. Friend that this pull factor is a dreadful thing, but could there be an exception to the rule for children who genuinely have not a soul left in the world? There is no pull or push factor for them. They are abandoned. Surely we have a duty to take them.

Refugees: UK Government Policy (10 Feb 2016)

Heidi Allen: It is not only the UK. Every European nation is relying heavily on Greece to take the workload, and the international community needs to come together.

Refugees: UK Government Policy (10 Feb 2016)

Heidi Allen: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Welfare Reform and Work Bill (23 Feb 2016)

Heidi Allen: I rise to speak to Lords amendments 8 and 9. Reforming our welfare state was one of the greatest challenges facing the previous coalition Government and it continues to be one of the greatest challenges facing this Government. We are making phenomenal progress, with record levels of employment, and the Welfare Reform and Work Bill is unquestionably at the heart of this transformation. Welfare...

Humanitarian Crisis: Greece (2 Mar 2016)

Heidi Allen: I thank the Secretary of State and the Minister for coming to the House—I know they care deeply about the plight of refugees, and I do not doubt for one minute that they are working exceptionally hard on this issue. However, given what I saw when I visited Lesbos a month ago, I am not surprised by the chaos that Greece is now in—you could see it coming. The Secretary of State kindly...

Royal Naval Deployment: Mediterranean (7 Mar 2016)

Heidi Allen: I welcome the Secretary of State’s statement and the role of the Navy. Many hands do, indeed, make light work. Forgive me for being over-simplistic, but I would like to understand whether our latest offering is purely about moving bodies back to coastlines, or whether it integrates somehow with the resettlement of refugees and the chaos that our European neighbours find themselves in.

Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 2 — Onshore wind power: renewables obligation (14 Mar 2016)

Heidi Allen: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 2 — Onshore wind power: renewables obligation (14 Mar 2016)

Heidi Allen: Not me personally, but certainly the residents in my constituency have. Everything my hon. Friend has said is right. I find it staggering, given that the world of physics and wave technology is well understood, that amplitude modulation should suddenly be a surprise to us in relation to wind farms. It is a natural occurrence of wave technology. We have a wide knowledge and evidence base in my...

Mental Health Taskforce Report — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: Does my hon. Friend think it is right that we have a separate payment model for mental health, or should physical and mental health be treated together? Separating them could cause the very division that we are trying to lose.

backbench business: Unaccompanied Children — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (19 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: My hon. Friend has, in fact, just answered the question that I was going to ask. Does it make children any less vulnerable or at risk that they are from a country other than Syria? However, she just answered that question, for which I thank her.

backbench business: Unaccompanied Children — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (19 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: I will be as fast as I can, Madam Chair.

backbench business: Unaccompanied Children — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (19 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: Our ability to save the lives of children is immediate, doable and incumbent on us as members of the human race. In the past two months, I have visited Lesbos and Calais. Given the world’s attention on these unprecedented levels of migration, I was astounded to find a lack of coherent asylum processing and support for the most vulnerable refugees—children. In Lesbos, aid workers told of...

Immigration Bill: Unaccompanied Refugee Children: Relocation and Support (25 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: I do not feel that we are taking responsibility; at the moment, it is British citizens who are taking responsibility. I am afraid that seconding one person is not good enough. When I visited, with the right hon. Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper), we saw a similar example of a child who had gone missing pitching up in Kent a week later. This is happening on a...

Immigration Bill: Unaccompanied Refugee Children: Relocation and Support (25 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: I wish to speak on the Dubs amendment. May I start by thanking the Minister for Immigration and the Under-Secretary of State for Refugees for their genuine commitment to this cause? I know that, in this matter, they have tried to use both their head and their heart. Having seen the desperate scenes in the refugees camps in Lesbos and Calais, I have had a very brief window into the world of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Dangerous Driving: Sentencing (26 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: Question 6, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Dangerous Driving: Sentencing (26 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: What progress he has made on reviewing sentencing for causing death by dangerous driving.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Dangerous Driving: Sentencing (26 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: I was unnecessarily keen, as always, Mr Speaker. I asked that question on behalf of one of my constituents, 21-year-old Alex Jeffery, who was killed by a dangerous driver. The sentence given was only four years and three months, and we all know that it will probably end up being less than that. Will there be a time when sentences for causing death by dangerous driving are the same as those...

Devolution (East Anglia) (27 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Devolution (East Anglia) (27 Apr 2016)

Heidi Allen: I am just a turkey voting for Christmas, because following on from that point it occurred to me that there will also be a debate between MPs and the mayor. Who will be fighting for the infrastructure? I do not understand where the demarcation will lie.
